If you are injured at your workplace and out of work, you are entitled to get permanent or temporary disability benefits. You can seek help of an attorney who is capable of helping injured people get permanent and temporary disability benefits based on their situation. There is a difference between these two disability benefits. Temporary disability benefits are paid during the time you are recovering from job-site injury as a result of your injury. On the other hand, when job-site injury permanently damages your condition, you may be eligible to receive permanent disability benefits. The rates for both the disabilities are set by the law. In case you are a victim of a job site injury, you should get in touch with an experienced attorney to help you.
